Dinner on the Beach with Sessions Sandwiches Take-Out | @SessionsNB #BeachDinner #lastdaysofsummer

We received the products mentioned below for reviewing purposes. All opinions are our own. Our last days of summer are coming to an end. Why not plan a picnic with the family on the beach? Last week we did just that with Sessions Sandwiches in Newport Beach. It was the perfect timing, because we wanted to check out the high tides so we ordered take-out and enjoyed it in Newport Beach. During week nights, scoring street parking shouldn’t be a problem. If you prefer a salad, they have those too. You can choose between salads like Margherita, Thai Cobb, and Charlie. We tried their Charlie Salad which came with jalapeno-dilled … READ MORE >>

Ticket Giveaway: Newport Landing Whale Watching! | #NewportBeach @NewportWhales

For our most recent whale watching excursion, we boarded the Western Pride from Newport Landing Whale Watching. We followed them for about 15 minutes, but didn’t want to get too close to disturb them. It was pretty amazing. We love being on the water, because the ocean breeze is so clean. Can you see how blue the water is? Later, we found common dolphins that swam along our boat. The common dolphins are really fast.

A Dining Experience at Roy’s #SanDiego @RoysRoy

At this point, we’re still in San Diego rushing to make it to our dinner at Roy’s Restaurant. It’s a waterfront dining experience, but since we got there too late, it was already too dark to really enjoy it. Bummer. The nice thing about entertaining out-of-town guests is sometimes they get you try new things you wouldn’t normally even think to try. My sister-in-law loved her dining experience at The Original Roy’s in Hawaii and so we all tagged along for dinner while she rekindled her cravings for a famous Roy’s Melting Hot Chocolate Soufflé. Roy’s Restaurant – San Diego, CA (c) Let’s Play OC! Here’s our first course: Appetizers … READ MORE >>
